Thoroughly recommend, everything you would need ....has been considered...the owners even supply all the coal and firelighters and kindling ...nothing worse than arriving in the winter to find no fuel for the wood burner or matches ! Sea views from every window and cosy and warm in each room . Table and chairs at the front in fenced off garden overlooking the sea and harbour, which catch the late morning/ midday winter sun. But also lovely top garden with magnificent views and a bit more privacy in the summer months from the footpath. Superb walks both ways along the coast path and inland, we didn't move the car from the car park...but we did take quite a lot of provisions and there is a pub and very nice hotel in the harbour! All very relaxing and beautiful night skies, sunsets and the sound of the sea to lull you to sleep. Don't hesitate to book you won't be disappointed
